The Ministry of Agriculture & Forestry is seeking public input into the development of a new process for recovering from the effects of adverse events on commercial agriculture, horticulture, viticulture & forestry properties.
MAF released a public discussion document yesterday, Building resilience, which sets out policy options for how the new system could work. Submissions close on Tuesday 31 October.
MAF Policy’s North Island manager, Phil Journeaux, said the aim of the review of the On-farm adverse events recovery framework was to promote a shared understanding of the roles & responsibilities of central government, local government & the primary production sector in preparing for, and recovering from, adverse events.
Public consultation meetings will be held throughout the country in October.
